On a side (yet related) note, the #1 ranked USA woman's volleyball team will be playing on 7/16 & 7/18 at USC's Galen Center at 7 pm. It's a great place to watch a volleyball match! Oh, and tickets are only $10 for adults. GO USA!! - VeloMouseGirl  549.8 #371 7:10PM
Now I really wanna go! USA Women's volleyball team AND Disneyland...two of my favs! πŸ˜ƒ Ugh, and I reall wanna see them play. It's been a while since I've seen a live game and even longer since I've actually played 😞 - JazzyJade808  176.8 #2295 8:05AM
Misty May Treanor threw out the first pitch at the Dodger game last night. Her husband plays for the Dodgers - ScooterMike  1963.0 #83 3:02PM
Got to see them courtside on Friday night. They played at Canyon High School here in Anaheim. Way better than Galen Center cause we were actually on the floor with them. Galen Center is a great venue though and Bulgaria has a couple of really good athletes. Hope to be able to make this. Yep Scooter Mike, Matt Treanor whoop whoop! - toph  2418.2 #60 7:37AM
Toph.....I sat in floor seats at Galen for a match. It was awesome. Bring closer is always better :) - VeloMouseGirl  549.8 #371 9:11AM
the only person between me and the servers was the linesman...and my tickets were RAK by some guy leaving the sold out match! it was pretty awesome...and yeah i've sat courtside galen center, lb pyramid, uci, ucla...but this was standing next to them. i got great shots and videoπŸ˜„ - toph  2418.2 #60 9:39AM

Tuesday just gets cooler by the second. - MeridasHair  346.5 #687 9:24AM
I concur. - dpaz310  36.1 #5450 7:10PM
I just wanted clarification on where Mickey and his friends would sing happy birthday. Are the characters actually physically coming out to sing in town square or is the audio broadcasted in the park along with Walt's opening day speech? Thanks! - Jenniferr  506.7 #418 1:16AM
I believe they're coming out to sing as well. - Jacqueline  580.0 #349 2:28AM
The outer perimeter of Town Square is where guests participate. The inner park portion of Town Square (where the flag pole and popcorn cart are) is where characters gather. Walt's opening day speech is played, followed by the singing of "Happy Birthday" by everyone. It's over in about three minutes, but you'll see about 60 characters at once. - susieQzee  555.8 #366 7:16AM
Thanks for the clarification! Do any of the characters stay for pictures? - Jenniferr  506.7 #418 5:24PM
Can't wait! - Jacqueline  580.0 #349 2:29AM
